Summary

 

Structural Mechanics - CI2-231

Aims

The aim of this course is to build on the knowledge and understanding gained in first year Mechanics (CI1-130) and Structural Mechanics (CI1-131), providing a more sophisticated understanding of the physical behavior of structural elements and systems. In the Spring Term the course focuses on analysing the structural response of various beam cross-sections and plates to axial and shearing forces, bending and twisting moments, as well as introducing elasticity through description of the constitutive relationship, including plane stress and plain strain assumptions. In the Spring Term the course focuses on analysing structural systems using the flexibility and stiffness methods, and moment distribution.

Structural Analysis - CI9-STR-34

Aims

This module is intended to bring all students to a similar level as far as fundamental structural analysis is concerned. It comprises two distinct parts: mechanics of materials and physical behaviour of structural elements; and common structural analysis methods. The material is viewed as the ideal core knowledge that would be expected of postgraduate students with an undergraduate background in civil, mechanical or structural engineering.

Role

Course Leader

Sketching and Modelling - CI1-105

Aims

The aim of the module is to provide students with an introduction to sketching and modelling as collaborative tools allowing communication and development of ideas through an iterative approach. Manual and computation work will be carried out with the design challenge highlighting both as essential to a creative and inventive engineering design process.
